Types of Felony DUI Offenses
There are three primary scenarios where a driver may face felony DUI charges, as opposed to traditional misdemeanor DUI charges:
- Third or Subsequent DUI Offense: If you are arrested for DUI and you already have two or more prior convictions on your record, a third offense may be charged as a felony. This may be punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
- DUI Causing Serious Injury: If you are involved in an auto accident and are accused of causing the accident while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, you may face felony charges, prison time, and heavy fines.
- DUI Causing Death. If you are accused of causing a fatal auto accident while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, you could face felony charges for DUI causing death. This may result in a sentence of up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $15,000.
